Witness the Return of a Classic Tragedy to the Houston Grand Opera

Experience a captivating night of unforgettable opera as a special production of Norma takes the stage at Resilience Theater! This timeless masterpiece is returning to the Houston Grand Opera after 25 years, so make sure you witness the historic performance with this exclusive series of shows.

Norma, the summit of the bel canto opera tradition, is a reworking of the Euripidean tragedy Medea. Inspired by the ancient Greek myth of Jason and the Argonauts, the opera tells the story of a high priestess who finds herself in a spiritual crisis, making the ultimate sacrifice after being scorned by the father of her children and forced to choose between love and duty. In this inspiration rendition, the talents of the Houston Grand Opera showcase the soaring vocal acrobatics and melodies ranging from the stunningly serene “Casta Diva” to the fury of fireworks that explode as Norma hits its climatic peak. The show is sure to be a one-of-a-kind presentation of this classic story, so mark your calendar for the return of Norma to the Houston Grand Opera!
